Dangerous Liaisons

Continuity mistake: At the end of the duel the Vicomte de Valmont falls where he is hit, next to the wall; Danceny and Azolan rush immediately to his side. During his subsequent repentance and death, he is not moved. In the final, overhead, shot of the scene there is a long trail of blood in the snow and Valmont is not near the wall. (01:49:30 - 01:52:30)

Question: What are the nuns doing to Marie de Tourvel when she is sick? What possible benefit did they feel it would have?

Chosen answer: It looked to me like they were performing what is known as "cupping". "Cupping" is a branch of Chinese medicine where a cup (often heated, the so-called "fire cupping") is used to create a vacuum on certain areas of the skin, to simulate acupressure. It is said to relieve respiratory problems and muscular pains ad to stimulate the flow of life energy in the patient. How these French nuns came to know of and approve of the technique is another matter..
